Minority/ethnic communities offer today new and hybrid perspectives on the stakes of globalization, and the study of these perspectives is crucial in the necesseray process of questioning the contemporary values, theories and practices of globalization in the areas of economy, politics, education, culture, literature, etc.

This international conference, organized by the Institute of Languages and International Studies research group at the University of Versailles, will be the occasion for a multi-disciplinary and transcultural exchange between ehtnic praxes in the different areas listed below and praxes of globalization--the goal is to (further) develop transcultural connections that can participate in the global reflection on the characteristics and effects of globalization, and on the possible alternatives to some of its aspects.
